Question about La Pavoni "PROFESSIONAL Chrome" 16Cup

2 Answers

La Pavoni Professional. The machine never stops heating.

I cleant the presurestat and preasurestat-pipe from calcium. Still the machine does not cease to stop heating. So the preasure builds up to high and the preasure valve starts whisteling. My question is: What is the problem here? Do I have to change the savety thermostat? What else?

Hi there, the problem here is your pressure stat attached to copper pipe. Although you have descaled it the pressure stat is very hard to get scale out of once it is in there. The best thing to do is replace this part by going to and clicking on the pavoni lever machine on the right hand side. This will take you to a parts list where you can order online. Any problems please get in touch with David at

  1. check the diaphragm of presurestat, it might be to old and non sensitive, measure the cirquit at presurestat. does he open the cirquit when it is at 1.5 bar pressure(you can test it with air, no need to be built in machine)
  2. if presurestat works properly than check the heating element, he can take phase directly and heat in conection with grownd if it is broken, than you cant stop it he heats to infinitive. in this case you replace the heating element.
as i said solution is either pressurestat or heating element.

I have a La Pavoni Professional (Brass and Copper???) that was given to me by someone who's husband had passed away and it has been sitting unused for about 5 years. It wouldn't heat up, and upon...

Hi there,
It is very cost effective to fix and not buy a new one if you haven't already. A new element and gasket kit would set you back about £80 where a new machine of this same spec will set you back at least £700 for the brass and copper or even more. You can purchase parts from our website and we send all over the world. I hope i have caught you before you purchase a new one and i would also ask that if you have not thrown the other one away i would be happy to take it off your hands at the right price. You can contact me at

La Pavoni Lever Machine Hissing?

Hi there,
If you have a La Pavoni lever model espresso machine and the safety assembley on the top right hisses while the machine is heating up, all you have to do is use something hard but preferably not metal or too large and tap the safety assembly quite firmly but not to hard and this should stop the hissing. This is because inside the assembly there is a bung on a spring and sometimes it becomes stuck and just needs a gentle tap to free it up. If it doesn't stop hissing then you can remove and stretch the spring or if needs be replace the spring and bung.

First Cup Is Cold From La Pavoni Europiccola

If the machine works great after the first cup then it is possible that the heat for your first espresso went to heating the portafilter or the cup used to brew into, try warming the portafilter first by running some hot water through it first.
